In case anyone wasn't aware, restoration work is now underway on the First White Cloth Hall. The (old) scaffolding is off, and the builders are in. Exciting times!

I have put below 3 photos that I took on May 21 2019 of work going on at the site of the First White Cloth Hall. A security metal mesh fence made it hard to take photos but I managed to take them by putting my pocket-sized simple digital camera through a thin gap then holding the camera right up against the mesh and I was then able to put a finger through the mesh to turn the camera on and press the shutter. I could not though readily frame the camera so I just hoped something reasonable came out!

PS. The third photo may seem to indicate that Kirkgate was closed to traffic but it was not as traffic still ran towards Vicar Lane on the one way Kirkgate.

I just hope they'll actually follow suit and build something instead, and that they won't run out of money in the middle of their work and leave a pile of bricks rotting for a year, before selling it to some company that'll build cheap housing for people to install airbnb's in and bump up the rent prices...
